A wet black labrador dog in Phelps Mill Park by the Otter Tail river.

Wet Black Lab

Eddie really learned how to swim in Minnesota last spring. We’d taken him a number of times as a smaller puppy but this was the first time he was big enough to really retrieve anything in the water. I took this portrait of him, soaking wet, after a swim one evening.

  • Bonsoir,
    well done “portrait”..Nice shot..Bravo!

  • the intense look of determination in his eyes is a result of some kids with fishing rods which he completely fixated on as soon as he noticed them.
